Rise to Power

Monstrosity - Rise to Power

Rise to Power is the fourth studio album by American death metal band Monstrosity. The album was recorded at Audio Hammer studios in Sanford, Florida, with engineer Jason Suecof and was released on September 23, 2003, via Conquest Music.

During the tour in promotion of Rise to Power, Monstrosity headlined the Rock Al Parque festival in Bogotá, Colombia, and performed in front of 80,000 people.

Background Edit

Following an unsuccessful planned Mexican tour, which was initially scheduled for early December 2001 and rescheduled for early 2002 as a result of Sepultura's Mexican dates coinciding with the original trek, Monstrosity began to record their fourth studio album at Morrisound Studios in early 2002. However, due to the band's heavy touring schedule, the recording of the follow-up to the compilation album Enslaving the Masses was pushed back to April 2002.
